Warzone 2: BEST M16 Loadout & Class Build

After playing the Warzone 2 for more than 120 hours, I will recommend the following loadout for M16.

The M16 is essentially a three-round burst Assault Rifle that comes with a high Time To Kill. Since the M16 serves to be a weapon for situations involving mid to long-range combat, I have put together a list of attachments that maximizes this very aspect of the M16.

Key Takeaways
  • Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 features a great range of powerful and efficient Assault Rifles.
  • The M16 is a special Assault Rifle that features a three-round burst shot mode.
  • Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 continues the tradition of allowing customizability in weapon classes.
  • The game comes with advanced features that allow for maximum customizability according to personal preference.
  • With the attachments and perks I have chosen for the best M13B weapon class setup, you will be able to obliterate all the enemies that you face in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Perk Package

For the Perk Package for the best M16 loadout in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0, I have chosen Vanguard as recommendation. The Vanguard Perk Package comes with the perks Double TimeBomb SquadResupply, and High Alert.

  • Double Time comes in with considerable boosts to the tactical sprint duration. Double Time also serves to increase your movement speed while in the crouched position.
  • The second perk in the Vanguard Perk Package is Bomb Squad. Bomb Squad helps protect you from different forms of explosives.
  • The third perk in the Vanguard Perk Package is Resupply. Resupply essentially equips you with an additional lethal grenade right from the get-go.
  • Lastly, High Alert essentially notifies you whenever an enemy spots you by making your vision pulse. This is especially useful when you cannot see the enemy, but they can see you.

Secondary Weapon

Naturally, the secondary weapon in the M16 Warzone 2.0 Loadout has to be one that is focused on acing close-range encounters, essentially providing a very well-rounded build for situations of all sorts in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

The FSS Hurricane

The first option for the secondary weapon is the FSS Hurricane. I think it is, by far, one of the best, if not the best SMG in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0. The FSS Hurricane compensates for the shortfalls of the M16 when it comes to situations involving close-range combat.

On top of that, the FSS Hurricane is a weapon with extremely high accuracy. It essentially allows you to confirm a kill should your M16 fail at doing so.

The Expedite 12

The other option for the secondary weapon is the Expedite 12. Just like the FSS Hurricane is regarded highly in the SMGs class, the Expedite 12 is considered to be one of the best, if not the best, Shotgun in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0.

Personally, I love to use Expedite 12 as it allows me to obliterate enemies in one shot at close range; something which is much needed with the M16 weapon loadout.

Lethal Equipment

For the Lethal Equipment slot, the Semtex proves to be a very good option with the best M16 loadout in COD Warzone 2.0. Being able to stick enemies with live grenades comes with its own class and satisfaction.

Not only that, it scores better than the Frag Grenade in the sense that it allows for more precision and has more chances of securing a kill, while the Frag Grenade happens to roll away more often than not.

Tactical Equipment

For the Tactical Equipment slot, the Shock Stick paired with Semtex is a very good option. The Shock Stick essentially sticks to surfaces. Not only that, but it is also able to electrocute enemies and destroy equipment belonging to the enemies themselves.

A good alternative to the Shock Stick is the Spotter Scope for the Tactical Equipment in the best M16 loadout in Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0. As the name indicates, the Spotter Scope allows you to spot and then mark your enemies from a distance. 

My Take On M16 Assault Rifle

The M16 is a unique option in the AR category, and it is not suitable for everyone. Since the firearm is not fully automatic, I recommend getting used to its mechanism and performance first.  Do try the attachments and perks listed above, and let us know what you think of the loadout I have put forward. I always recommend customizing things to fit your personal choice since everybody has their own preferences.

That sums up the guide on COD Warzone 2.0 Best M16 loadout. Other than that, the game also features weapon tuning so that you can customize each attachment to your liking. Thus, you should try different attachments alongside this weapon to see which one suits the most and gets you the easiest Warzone Victory!
